The Service & Retail Sales Tax grant fund is implemented by Valley City Ordinance No. 800 under the authority of NDCC 40-57.3. In the case of the Image Enhancement Grant for Historic Building Renovation, the monies raised by a 5 percent of one percent sales tax are to be used to assist in the rehabilitation of retail and service businesses, including but not limited to, structural renovations or improvements and expenditures that will enhance the overall image of the business while protecting the historic integrity of the building.
The grant award generally does not exceed $15,000 with a 1/1 cost ratio shared with the applicant.
Awards will be based on specific program guidelines that target building renovation for buildings 50 years old or older within the Central Avenue commercial district shown on the attached map.
